The 1.20 update is almost here, and we know you’re all excited. It’s set to release on June 7th.
While there’s no exact release time yet (but here’s an estimate of it), it’s likely to be around 11 am EST based on previous releases.
When it’s available, you’ll need to download it. Even if your console or platform has automatic updates, it might take some time to download.
Downloading Minecraft 1.20 on Mobile Devices
If you can’t wait to play the new update, you might want to download it manually. Here’s how you can do that on Android and iOS devices.
Steps for Android Devices
Downloading the latest Minecraft update on your Android device is pretty straightforward. Here’s what you need to do:
- Turn on your Android device.
- Open the Google Play Store.
- Search for Minecraft and select the app.
- If you already have the game installed, you’ll see an option to update the app. If you don’t have it installed, installing it now will give you the latest version, 1.20.
- Click on the update or install button and wait for the download to finish. Once it’s done, you’ll have the latest version installed.
- Open the app and start exploring the Trails & Tales update.
Steps for iOS Devices
The process is slightly different for iOS devices, but it’s still easy to do. Here’s how:
- Turn on your iOS device.
- Open the App Store. This will take you to the “Today” page of the store.
- Click on your profile icon in the top right of the screen.
- Scroll down a bit until you see the updates section.
- Refresh the page by pulling it all the way down to make sure the 1.20 update appears.
- Scroll down to find Minecraft in the list of updates.
- Click on the button to update Minecraft.
- Once the update is done, you can update the rest of your apps.
- Open Minecraft and start playing the 1.20 version.
Alternatively, you can click on “Update All” and then go to the home screen. Find Minecraft and long press on it. This will give you the option to prioritize this download, which will put Minecraft first in the queue.
